Content Attributes

Content Attributes are used to control certain HTML elements on a page. They can also be used to organize pages in the back office as well as your storefront.

Content Attributes consist of the following sections:


Name This is the internal name of the attribute. This name will not appear in the storefront.
Status This is the current status of the attribute. The status can be Active, Inactive and Archived.
Display Name This is the external name of the attribute. This name will appear in the storefront.
Type This is the attribute type. The types available are drop down, checkbox, small text area, large text area, media and date.
Show On Website (FLEX) This option when selected controls whether or not this attribute will show up in your storefront.
Required This option will make the attribute required to be filled out with data in order to save it.
Slug This is the internal alpha-numeric data point that gets created when you create the attribute for the very first time. This can them be used as part of a theme and a .flex file.
Show On Non-Template Pages This option allows you to use this attribute on pages that are not templates. This attribute will appear if this option is selected when creating Non-template Type pages.
Attribute Order This field requires a number. This number will correlate to the order of the attribute. For example, a 6 will make this attribute show up before any attributes with a 7 or higher. If blank, it is set to 0 by default.
